The first post

Hi all,


Welcome to the European Geosciences Union young seismologist blog – Seismoblog. This is a new website dedicated to the young researchers within the EGU Seismology Division. It is my honour to be the Young Scientist Representative within this division for the next couple of months. Following discussions with the President of the Seismology Division, Charlotte Krawczyk, we have decided to set up this blog to promote the talents of young seismologist and to serve as a gateway for students to communicate with the division.

I would like to introduce myself briefly. I am Matthew Agius, 31 years old, and hail from the island of Malta. I have just finished my Ph.D. studies I undertook at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. My studies there focused about the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere beneath Tibet using seismic surface-wave analysis.

Till next post, take care.Have a look at the different sections available on this website and please consider registering.


Matthew Agius is a recent PhD graduate from the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies in Ireland and is now doing research at the University of Southampton (National Oceanography Centre). His research focuses on the dynamics of the lithosphere beneath Tibet, the Central Mediterranean, and the Pacific Ocean. Matthew’s role as a young scientist representative is to promote the efforts done by young researchers and to engage in discussions that concern seismology students. You can reach Matthew via e-mail at
